Author's comments and explanations:
Vectorman is considered to be one of the last great games for the Genesis platform. The hero is a robot with rocket-boosters in his shoes and a photon gun strapped to his hand, set to stop another, somewhat crazy, robot from destroying Earth. Oh, and the crazy robot has a nuclear warhead bolted to him.

This game was a ton of fun to make because it’s so versatile and there are a lot of little nuances that keep it surprising. My motivation for this run was Zer0’s previously rejected run, and I’d like to thank him for making the template that I worked off of. I improved his run by almost about 53 seconds, and did so without taking damage. This was also my first experience with using the Gens RAM viewer, and the extremely quick bosses were due mainly to this. A day by day breakdown would be a little bit long, so here’s some highlights:

This game has been known to suffer some desynching issues, so make sure you use the right ROM and correct version of Gens just to make sure. I had several problems with desynchs, especially with the Day 6 boss, so I hope things work for everyone. Here’s the important info.Gens9Z_20070209 was used, and I didn’t change any settings except remapping the keys. No warps or passwords were used. Played on the hardest level. My Goals:

Primary: Take no damage.

Secondary: Complete the game in the fastest time possible.

Tertiary: High score.

Enjoy! :)

EDIT: Due to discussion, back to the drawing board.
